It consists of a machine-washable, reversible piece of soft, fuzzy fabric mounted on a low-to-the-ground, banana-shaped natural wood frame. Not only will your cat be able to sleep on the hammock, they'll also be able to use it as a surface to play and roll around on, if they choose. The hammock will accommodate the weight of most cats as it can withstand up to 22 pounds.

How to Use (Step by Step)
- Place Frame on Surface
Before you start using this hammock, you'll need to place its frame on any flat surface, such as a carpeted floor, a hard floor, or a flat bed of patio stones.
- Attach Hammock
The Catnap Hammock is reversible, showing leopard print on one side and solid beige on the other, so you'll need to decide what side you want facing up. Once you've made that decision, you can then attach one end of the hammock to each hook on your wood frame. You'll find these hooks at the very top of the frame, on opposite ends.
- Call Cat
After you've attached the hammock to the frame, this bed will be ready to use. You'll need to call your cat over and either place them on it or pat the hammock so they jump up on their own. If they seem reluctant to use it, you may want to sprinkle some catnip on the fabric for some extra encouragement.
- Attractive Look
With its natural wood frame and fashionable fuzzy fabric, the Catnap Hammock will look good in almost any room, regardless of that room's color scheme. It'll also look good in a yard or on a patio or deck.
- Low to Ground
This hammock sits only a few inches off the ground, so even if your cat is timid when it comes to heights, they likely won't feel afraid. There's also little chance of a cat hurting themselves if they fall off the hammock while rolling around or turning over.
- Holds 22 Pounds
This hammock will hold up to 22 pounds without ripping or falling off the frame, so unless your cat is much heavier than average, they'll be able to use it. Two very small cats may even be able to use it at the same time.
- Washing Machine Safe
When your Catnap Hammock gets dirty, it's perfectly safe to remove the fabric piece from the frame and wash it in your washing machine. However, the frame must not be put in the washing machine under any circumstances. Instead, you can wipe it off with a slightly damp cloth, if necessary.
- Provides Good Vantage Point
Using the Catnap Hammock will enable your cat to sit in a place where they can watch you and everything that's going on, without being right on the ground or using other furniture. This bed only weighs a few pounds, so when you move to a different area of the home or outdoors, you likely won't have a problem bringing it with you.
- Doubles as Toy
This hammock isn't only useful when your cat wants to sit or sleep—they can also have fun batting at the strings attached to the fabric when they're in a playful mood. You could also throw a toy up onto the hammock and have them jump up and get it.
- Small Dogs Can Use
Although this hammock has been designed for cats, small dogs will be able to use it safely, too, as long as they weigh less than 22 pounds.
- Not for Very Heavy Cats
If your cat is heavier than 22 pounds, due to obesity or a very large bone structure ( as is often seen with the Maine Coon breed ), this bed won't accommodate their weight. A heavy cat could try to use this bed, but they might soon find themselves dropping to the ground instead of relaxing slightly above it.
- Could Cause Catfights
Two cats might fight over the Catnap Hammock if there's only one in a household, or only one in a certain room. However, this problem could be remedied by getting more than one hammock or moving more than one into the same area.
- Might Fall Over
If your cat is very energetic during play, and likes to play on or near the Catnap Hammock, they may accidentally knock it over. While it's unlikely that this will hurt them, having to keep righting the hammock might be annoying to an owner.
- Doesn't Fold up
This hammock's frame doesn't fold up, so if you decide to take the hammock on a trip, you may find that it takes up more space in your vehicle's trunk or backseat than you'd prefer.
- Traditional Cat Bed
Some cats like to sleep and play in traditional cat beds, but these aren't that exciting, since they don't raise the cat a few inches off the floor. When a cat gets to recline at a higher level on the Catnap Hammock, they'll be able to see their owner better and feel like they're more involved in the action around them.
- Lying on Floor
Lying on the floor without much padding can be uncomfortable for a cat, and like a traditional cat bed, this keeps them at a level far below their owner( s ).
- Reclining on Pillow
Cats often enjoy sleeping on pillows, and this is comfortable for them. If you give your cat a pillow to sleep on, though, that'll be one less pillow you'll be able to use on your own bed or the beds of others in your household.
